What a full-on month! I am so excited to be finally in our new studio. On Tuesday I had a fantastic time photographing what felt like a zillion little ones in the new space. The light was fantastic bouncing around all over the show…. Although I am fighting the urge to paint the entire thing black!! However I don’t think Mr Young will be having that.

Thanks a million to our gorgeous models who all worked so hard to help make these photographs.

This was my last winter sunrise at the beach for a while… our noses almost froze and fell off. But this families commitment to beautiful morning golden light created the most beautiful skies for us to work with.

The nailed the “Mum & Dad” shot.  We also did a few one on ones, giving each child a special photo of themselves with each parent.

These two little boys are incredibly lucky, the love and sense of fun their big sister shares with them is beautiful to watch & photograph.

Over the next week or so, I plan on sharing the images that I entered into the NZIPP Iris awards. I am so grateful to Estelle, her mum, her chicken and pony for helping me bring this idea to life. This image received a Bronze award.

We have had the most fun over the last couple of months putting together a display for Jenna McKenzie School of Dance brand new studio. The dancers did a brilliant job at making the beach & gardens look tropical – I can assure you it was not.

The finished installation consisted of 3 large canvas + 13 custom framed prints which we printed &
framed ourselves. We absolutely love how it turned out – there are still a couple more things to go up so
watch this space!!

MODEL ACCESS

Such a privilage to be invited to photograph Peggy’s Christening. We started off the day with a photoshoot in Deans Bush, followed by a very moving ceremony in the rose garden outside Riccarton House. I have so much more to share from this shoot..
